CFI Member at Whaelghinbran Farm

by Community Forests International on June 1, 2010

CFI member Colleen Freak recently landed at Whaeghlinbran Farms outside of Sussex, NB for a stint of volunteer work at this revered organic farm. Farm owners Clark Phillips and Susan Tyler have provided a remarkable example of good land stewardship and have restored their woodlot through years of enrichment forestry. This site holds a special place in the CFI heart, demonstrating how humanity and the natural environment can strike a sustainable deal, providing for both without sacrificing the health and integrity of either. In order to maintain our present way of life, we must work to make conservation a consequence of production, and to walk through the Whaelghinbran forest one immediately sees that Clark and Susan have worked to make the dream of conservation forestry a reality.

The picture below shows Colleen outside the trailer in which she'll be living for her stay at Whaelghinbran Farm.  The trailer was restored by the Community Forests Canada gang, with a special thanks to Kevin Pauley and Gavin Hardie, both of which spent countless hours working on this vintage 1955 trailer.
